SEEDBALLS PLANTING PROJECT

Seedballs Planting Day at the Ellis County Rural Heritage Farm on the Martin Luther King Day of Service, Monday, January 17, 2022, was a great success!  Ginger Cole, Rural Heritage Farm Board Member and Project Director, reported that 2,000 to 3,000 seedballs containing Texas wildflower seeds were made, delivered, and/or distributed by families, individuals, and local church, school, and youth organizations at the Rural Heritage Farm.  Local groups that participated in the Seedballs Making Project included the Boys and Girls Club of Ellis County, Central Presbyterian Church Community Garden Project, Ellis County Master Gardeners, Indian Trail Chapter of the Master Naturalists, Pettigrew Academy, and St. Joseph Catholic School, among numerous families and individuals.  The project was supported by a $500.00 Seed Grant to the Farm from the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center and underwritten by Native American Seed.  For more information on the Seedballs Project, contact Ginger Cole:  ginger-ann@att.net, 214-240-8652.
